I want to buy a new cheap modem/ router which can support ADSL2+ / VDSL2 and i found 2 choices

1- TP-Link 4 Port 300Mbps Wireless N USB VDSL/ADSL Modem Router / TD-W9970

2- D-LINK 4 Port 10/100 WiFi N300 VDSL2 + / DSL-224


Which one is better

^This. I would choose Standalone modem + router over a combo gateway.
Its all about budget, I was intended to buy wifi AC router and use the ISP modem with it, I asked about this before and didn't get an answer so I put my plan
  1. I will buy VDSL modem now
  2. Then I will buy a standalone router and connect it to my VDSL modem after a while
 
Unless you have a very fast VDSL connection you may not need a better router. 802.11n is not real fast but it may keep up with a DSL connection. You could compare the speeds you get connected via ethernet to the wifi speeds. It is not uncommon to get 50-75mbps on 802.11n but it varies a lot from house to house.

Using a dsl connection as modem only is kinda strange. You most times must still run PPPoE on the router and many times you must have things like userid and password from the ISP. It is not as simple as a cable modem where you just plug the wan port in and it works with the default settings.
